Is going on here--
no comments for the last two posts hardly!!!
Do I have bad 'breathe'--is that it??
or  is everyone 'upset' that I am back to knitting again???
I promise --

I will still quilt this summer all summer--
along with some knitting, reading, counted cross, gardening, walking, decorating the apartment,playing with Miss Gracie--but most of all--
eating some(alot) of chocolate!!!!!!

Let's see-
where am I???
I have gotten '2' blocks all hand quilted on the Sunbonnet Sue quilt--
And they have been--Cat approved!!!!
Two new items have joined the house hold--
first is Miss Anny---
She has her very own teddy bear!!!
and I adopted her from the Country shoppe!!!
then there is --
the new little white dresser --
I will be taking the 2 doors off--
and will be putting some items in this bottom area--
any guess's as to what that might be?????
My doll china cabinet will go on top of this dresser also!!!
and yes that 'little' basket it new tooooo---
a great $5 bargain-- this will hold sewing things to carry around!!!!

I have been doing lots of prep work--
this week it has been tracing off embroidery designs--
I did '20' of these different baskets on 20 squares--
and then there is alot of other items to embroider in this basket--
Yep--even a Christmas one on top!!!!
got them all done today and was finally able to put the light box away--
for 3-4 weeks me and it has played a game--
when I go in to sew--it got moved to the bed--
when I got done--it went back over to sit on the cutting table!!!
Enough was enough!!!!

We had a bad storm the other night--
but yet we had the most beautiful rainbow at the same time--

So out came the camera!!!!

Tomorrow is an important day--
can you guess what it is??????
Miss Gracie knows--but she's not telling!!!!!!
Hugs, Di and that silly cat :-)
